“Middle range hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We was at this hotel in 2006 early December. The hotel was about 5-8 klm from center, but had the prevelege of being just in front of a tram station which made it quite convinience in terms of transportation. The staff at the receprion was rude, althoight the hotel was clean and the breakfast descent. The hotel is situated infront of a hokey play field which was unique to our eyes and is something ill always remember. The room( adouble) was quite comfort, i could say even big, and had everything we needed after a quite tiring day(walking from 09:00 till 20:00).
In general we were ok, except from the man in the reception. But maybe it was a bad day form him, i dont know.
It wasnt something extraordinary, but with the money we paid , we didnt excpecting for such.

Room Tip: choose a room looking in front

The hotel's got good location, 10 min by tram and the stop is just in front of the hotel. Rooms are simple and small but tidy and cute. We had included breakfast during our stay and we enjoyed it -a great variety of meals,drinks and fresh breads.
The service was good though at the reception desk they were a little impolite at times.
The only thing I found weird is the way they follow the calendar. It was said on Mon-Fri breakfast was from 6.30 - 10 and at weekends from 7 to 11. We arrived on Sunday so had breakfast on Monday morning at 11 but when we came on Tuesday at 9.50 sharp the doors of canteen were shut though people inside were having breakfast. When we came to the reception desk to find out if we could have our breakfast they didn't even talk to us, just murmured we missed it. Even there were 10 min to go they didn't let us in. That was quite disappointing. The rest was decent.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip. The hotel was pleasant and the staff were very friendly but it was very boring, the room was best described as 'beige'. the location was not very entertaining either, not much to see in terms of restaurants etc.

If I needed a non-descript place to stay for one nights of business I may stay here again.

Room Tip: There is a tramline right outside th hotel, choose a high room if you want to get away from the noic...

it was really hard to find this hotel. it is placed in the swimming pool building or something...
staff was not too friendly, but i did not interact much with them. the breakfast was ok, the room tidy, but old. i am glad i stayed one night only.
the location is very good, i chose the place because it was on the way from/to the airport and close to Olympia stadium.

This hotel is well situated, clean and provides a good breakfast every morning but the we found the reception staff were surly and unfriendly.

When we arrived at the hotel we discovered that there was no ventilation in our room and the windows were bolted shut. When we brought this up with the man on reception it felt as though he had little time for us. Before we had finished explaining he dismissed us and told us to use the small desk fan.

The shower flooded the bathroom whenever we used it. When we brought this to the attention of the staff their solution was to roll a towel and place it on the floor.

This hotel could have easily been a 4 or 5 if only the service we received was to higher standard and we were made to feel welcome.

Room Tip: Don't take the 2nd floor - it is the only floor where the windows don't open.

Visited this place during a business tour for four days. My stay was very relaxing and I never felt away from home. Stunning décor of the building was very impressive and the moment I entered the place I was left surprised. I have not expected this much. Food, rooms, services of the staff all were really beyond my expectations. I will definitely recommend this place to my other friends.

I have just returned from this amazing hotel and can't wait to share my views about this wonderful property. From the moment I entered the building, I was treated like a royal guest. The level of luxury, services and sheer perfection they offer is unbelievable. Entire property is very clean and every corner is properly utilized. Rooms are gracefully decorated and well-equipped with things of need. All meals were good, but breakfast was my favorite. I will definitely come here again.
